Jade's PA


Jade Cerisa Lorraine Goody, 4th placed finisher of Big Brother 3, former dental nurse and subsequently doyenne of the glossies. Due to a hard upbringing, her schooling was rather incomplete (e.g. thinking East Anglia was a foreign country) but through a combination of street smarts and blind luck she became a multimillionaire and probably the most financially successful BB contestant.

Her telly profile was maintained in various series on Living TV following her perfume business/fashion boutique/search for a secretary.

Goody participated in the 2007 series of Celebrity Big Brother, but was voted out half-way through the run after being widely accused of racist bullying of another contestant.

She was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2008, and died on 22 March 2009, aged 27.


Launched her own fragrance called Shh... - you can guess the other two letters.

Famously attempted to run the London Marathon after a diet of curry, Chinese and booze and only four training sessions. She thought that the race was 26km, not 26 miles. She collapsed after the 21st mile.

Once nearly defeated the Eggheads on her own, thanks to a series of lucky guesses.
